jennifer garner reacts to ben affleck as batman 'Batman vs. Superman': Ben Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner reacts to his casting

While the internet may not have accepted Ben Affleck‘s casting as Batman in the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel, there is at least one person rooting for him in “Batman vs. Superman.”

Affleck’s wife of eight years, Jennifer Garner, can’t wait to see him take on the iconic role and don the cape. “You know, I was excited for him,” Garner tells MTV News. “I was excited because he had a real take on what he wanted to do. I have to say, my husband is a pretty great storyteller himself, and I’m excited to watch him do it.”

Garner may have a bit of a soft spot for watching Affleck play a superhero, considering that the couple first met while filming the 2003 Marvel Comic movie “Daredevil.” They began dating after the film was released and were married in 2005, the same year that Garner took on the lead role in the superhero movie “Elektra.”
